{within works | ted talks}

Hello Designistas! 
How is your week going? We are doing fabulously! Lots of new things happening in Downtown Tucson and the new year is bringing change everywhere. 
We are currently in the process of creating change on our website, and decided that we needed to update projects and photos and even our mission statement.
One of our favorite TED Talks of all times is "How Great Leaders Inspire Action" by Simon Sinek. It has always made us think and re-think what we believe.
Therefore, we decided to update our Ingeniousness Tab on our Website.
Simon Sinek says:
"The Goal is not to do business with people that need what you have...
The Goal is to do business with people who believe what you believe." 
So we took on the challenge.. what do we believe?
We believe that great design should be accessible to everyone.
We believe in doing what we love.
We believe in giving back to the community that gives to you.

So....What do you believe???

Enjoy the video!

{within-spiration | wood in baths}

Good Morning Friends!
Today I am writing to you from my desk about a topic that has come up recently. Many people have asked my firm what our thoughts are on adding wood in a bathroom. Typically the conversation is about wood floors and some people tend to shy away from that due to the damadge that it could potentially do to your floor. Lets face it though, if you have a leak in your sink or toilet, it will hurt pretty much everything. It all depends how long you let it sit there.
Still, some people are really cautious. They love the wood look and feel but are too scared to put it on the floor. Counters are also very gorgeous in wood, but the fear persists. We think wood is a splendid option in a bathroom and it really helps warm things up and give you the "spa" feel you are looking for. Here are some inspirational images that may change your mind about wood. We love It!
What do you think?

Today's Simply Sweet is brought to you by our guest blogger Leslie Stelly!
That's a great way to start the year! Leslie has such a beautiful way of capturing love and energy in people.
We thought it would be perfect to have her do a Simply Sweet Post!
Thank you Leslie!

I want to capture them looking away from the camera at someone they love. I want to capture them laughing out loud...
Living out loud."

Hello Designistas! How is the new year going for you? We're busy working on fun residences, restaurants, retail shops, and even banks!
